The Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air celebrates its 10th anniversary with a spectacular production of this classic tale. Meticulously adapted from the book by Washington Irving, Colonial was determined to stay true to the mood and flavor the story is famous for. Outstanding performances by the Colonial Radio Players, a rousing (and scary) music score by Jeffrey Gage, thousands of sound effects, and the terrifying final encounter with the Headless Horseman, will surely become a Halloween favorite for your family.

If I could, I would give this adaptation of Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” 10 stars. This program is amazing to put it modestly. Colonial Radio has managed to take a timeless story and make it pure magic. Great acting (Ichabod Crane and Brom Bones are superb), wonderful sound effects, and a very lush music score make this one of the best pieces of audio theatre that I have ever heard. More impressive, is how they managed to keep the sheer poetry of Washington Irving’s words intact, while making this story enjoyable to a modern audience.
One listen to the sound clip will get you hooked. This is a perfect evening’s entertainment any evening as you approach the “witching hour”. I tip my hat to Jerry Robbins, and Jeffrey Gage for creating something truly wonderful...
